    @Lordy Ali that statement is contradictory. The coaches create/setup the system that will be played...I've grown confused by your statement.

    @Agent_WestCoast A they got so many turns cuz they had such a heavy workload, don't get me wrong they still will turn da ball over but with them sharing da pg duties they will b physically and mentally fresher

    One thing people are missing is that Russell Westbrook is a great defender and James Harden isn’t So they’ll be a lot better on defense people most Are looking offensively So that’s one reason It was a good move

    cris gotta point about them having no size. that's why I think u gotta put pj tucker at the 3 and start kenneth faried at the 4. that's bully ball right there with the most explosive backcourt of all time.

    Westbrook will be the PG of the 2nd unit. Houston upgraded. Harden will destroy opposing teams. When he sits and rest's Westbrook will be out there hustling. Obviously harden and Westbrook talked beforehand and agreed to sacrifice stats for the team. For a RING.

    Russ is the GOAT but Nick Wright you are wrong about Russ never missing a game since KD left. 2016 = 81 games. 2017 = 80 games 2018 = 73 games.

    Harden needs to adjust his game and focus more on play making while westbrook can play 2...both of them needs to play more defence.. Then we can say rockets can contend...until then we will just see 2 ball hogs

    Chris Paul is an overrated point guard. If you ask me who is going to win championship first, Chris Paul or Mike D’ Antonio. I put my money on D’ Antonio.

    I love this trade, we’ve got plenty of great 3 point shooters. Let Westbrook play more minutes in the regular season and switch it up in the playoffs.

    I actually think Russ will change his 3 point shot from a "Jumping" 3 pointer to more of s set shot (half the jump height of how he has shot before) It should bump his 3 pointers 2-3% to about 32% which would open up the lane for him!! Russ is also going to Post up more and pass/score from down low!!
